Awards & Scholarships

Don’t miss the opportunity to honor your colleagues with a Society of California Archivists award!

Every year SCA honors individual archivists and archival organizations with awards for outstanding service, achievements, or contributions to our profession. Awards are presented at the Annual General Meeting, where we celebrate and acknowledge the deserving recipients.
